Wake Up, Sid !

Watching the movie brought a breath of fresh air! And alongwith it, it brought sweet memories of college days (though it was not about partying and did not involve bunking) and life thereafter.

Memories of HR College. Friends. Life after college; the struggle to get a job; adjusting to life after studies; taking up responsibilities. All this from ‘Sid side’ of the movie.

More memories - Standing on own feet, being independent, making a name. All this from ‘Aisha Banerjee’s’ side.

The movie touched chords in more ways than one. The scenes from my college- HR; the dreams of Aisha; creativity. Though college ended almost 10 years back, the last 6 years of my life disappeared working day-night and being cut off from the world and friends. So all seems like a few years back (since I am back to living since the past 3 months).

All in all, I liked the movie. It wasn’t the typical movie, yet there was no dull moment. Konkona Sen Sharma as usual was brilliant. Only I felt that her character was in continuation of her role in LUCK BY CHANCE. Only this time the guy isn’t mean. But a sweet kid ! Apart from that, the movie has a message for students in the final year of their studies. No villains, thankfully. And no dramas! It’s a simple, fresh movie which leaves a nice feeling as you walk out. Go watch!

All the best, Ayan Mukherjee (he’s only 25 years, I’ve heard)! Waiting to see more light and sweet movies from your side

I really liked the movie "Lucky By Chance", as per your recommendation. I'm sure I'm going to like this one too. These sort of movies really makes us feel very nostalgic as they are quite realistic. At times we can even relate to the characters.
Sometimes, when I look back at my life, I realize I have come a long way. Then I can just think of the two lines of the ghazal by Jagjit Singh:

"Ek Lamhe Mein Simat Aaya Hai Sadiyon Ka Safar, Zindagi Tej Bahut Tej Chali Ho Jaise ...."

Hmm... yes, thanks to your recommendation of The Secret, my life has changed ! I don't know ur name or who you are, but you gave me inspiration to live. Maybe a God sent angel. Thanks!

As for movie, yes its good. And in this movie, Coco is very much like me! Loves to write, ambitious, yet down to earth and knows her limits! :) No wonder I identified with her character so much. Things I cannot express in real life, I can express better through writing! That's what she does in the end. Nice movie!

"No matter how qualified or deserving we are, we will never reach a better life until we can imagine it for ourselves and allow ourselves to have it."
These are the words of Richard Bach, one of my favorite authors.

Shagufta, I'm overwhelmed with your kind words. Thanks!
